Good news everyone, I have made it in the acting world (apparently) Seems as if I was on the television for a play I did a while ago, my phone was just buzzing with people saying 'you're on the telly'. The only people have ever heard on the telly is my phone so seeing my face is like a-hard-days-night-ringo-6Well good on them for broadcasting it after the watershed, I think little children would be crying if they saw my face brian-epstein

Congratulations, ASJ! What was it, when was it shown, and can it be found anywhere.

And don't do the bit about having an after-the-watershed face here! We all know you're beautiful!

Aww thank you my tentacles salute you! It was an excerpt from 'The Roses of Eyam' which I did last year (my character died, good times) It was shown on RTÉ 1 and I think it was featured during a 3-minute 'look our youth are some what talented....apparently' And I don't think so but I'll check the RTÉ player on the laptop tomorrow morning a-hard-days-night-george-9

Its obviously the media's fault, putting all that pressure on him.

Poor Justin. I bet he was framed and set up. They all have it in for him.

JB's just 19, all kids do this. They are just picking on him because of who he is.

 

All 3 of the above were no doubt posted on twitter by his fans within seconds of his arrest.

 

Personally i'm not interested in the slightest what he gets up to as long as i don't have to listen to him "sing" or watch him "act".

He won't go to prison. If anything he'll get a heavy fine and suspended sentence, probably in exchange for an autograph and signed goodies for the judge to give to his 7 year old die-hard Beiber fan daughter.

Speaking of nothing related to this topic...

For an assignment for one of my classes, I had to write a letter to somebody important...

Of course, I wrote to Paul McCartney.

I'm not sure. I can't remember the last time someone in his position was sent straight to jail without passing bail without already having a record (Lohan, etc). Maybe America is getting sick of these brats?

EDIT: Damn! They've just released the little feck on bail!

The bad news: Amazon Canada were just BSing me when they said they were 'processing' the order for my Dylan 47 CD box.

The good news: They assure me they will send it out today with a free upgrade to priority delivery - given this is a BIG box I couldn't afford this option before so it is around a $40 bonus.

Well, well, well. Congrats. Let's see if it can make it to you in two days.

Surprise, surprise - now they tell me they don't have any - yet it was sent to a friend by them 2 days ago who ordered after me - bunch of clowns.  Back on the waiting list limbo for a while :(

 

Pull something out of that lovely big stack you have to ease the pain, trc. *I will not put a clown picture here. Will refrain. Nope, quit looking at them, Ahhh Girl.*

 

@Necko, can you share any of the letter with us?

@ASJ, congrats. I "after the watershed" something like "after prime time" or "late night"?

Anyone who looks at it is killed within 24 hours? Well they would be if it was this clown.

It's not that I mind sharing, but I didn't really say anything interesting, just a bunch of ass-kissing.  Still, despite what I just said, everything in the letter was true.  I just said (heavy paraphrasing completely from memory, some parts left out for the sake of brevity) thank you for the great music over the years, The Beatles are my favorite band of all time, Sgt. Pepper is my favorite album of all time, New is one of my favorite records of 2013, your music has been a huge part of my life, etc. etc.

It's funny because we were supposed to make this seem like a semi-formal letter.  We had a sample template to follow.  Where I got stuck was the very top of the letter.  The example said "Dear Mr. [last name]."  Now I don't know about anyone else, but I've never written to anyone who has been knighted.  I wasn't sure if it was technically correct to say "Sir McCartney," so I just ended up saying "Sir Paul McCartney."

I just saw the rest of Funny Paper's avatar for the first time. George Harrison's signature is so nice.

Yeah, I love the big, curly 'G' and 'H' a-hard-days-night-george-9

I wish I had nicer handwriting, but I feel a bit old to sit there writing out the letters like they do in nursery school :)

^^^^ I agree, my writing is pretty awful :/ Every year except 'junior infants' (i.e Kindergarten, I guess?) I got 'fair' in my handwriting ahdn_george_07 I don't even do joined handwriting, whether I'm just lazy or always in a rush I don't know

Okay, I'm not sure where this should be, so I'm putting it here. If a mod can spot the thread it should be in, please move.

I was involved in a discussion where Something came up, and who it was about. Whatever the context was, somebody came up with a '70s/'80s quote where George denied it was about Pattie.

I am dipping in and out of the Kevin Howlett's The BBC Archives at the moment, which includes many transcriptions of interviews that they gave to the BBC. Here is an exchange between David Wigg and and George in October 1969, much closer to the time of the song's writing, and before he had a second wife.

DW: What inspired Something, for example?
GH: Maybe Pattie, probably.

So, which is true? George talking about it years later, when it would be difficult to say out loud that a song considered one of the great love songs was about his former - not current - wife, or a sheepish statement made within months of it being written where he says it was Pattie?

This is the problem with The Beatles, as I often say, that contemporary quotes are often contradicted by retrospective quotes.

I think that John Lennon nails it here, start the video at the 47:16 mark for his explanation on this occurrence...:-)

I think you are absolutely correct - great example. I think the "problem" stems from the amount of times they were asked the same questions. In most interviews with the boys as a group or singly, they look completely bored. Every once in a while a really good question got asked and you would see them perk up all of a sudden.

This is not exactly the same, but one summer I had a cast on my arm after some surgery to repair tendons that were damaged by a rather nasty, deep wound on my thumb of all places. After the 457,918th time I was asked "what happened to your arm?", I started making things up and telling each person something different because I got so bored with the question (my favorite and most imaginative involved lion taming lessons). 

In reading Lewisohn's book, I often think what a tough job it must be to sift through all of the contradictory info.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
